Your business analysts and application developers need to be on the same page to model, automate, measure, and improve their processes and policies. Miscommunication creates delays in delivery, increases costs, and compromises innovation.
Behavior-driven development (BDD) is an agile, customer-driven software development method that brings together subject matter experts, testers, and developers to improve the speed-to-market and quality of rules-based applications.

Cigna increased productivity and quality with BDD
In this webinar, Red Hat Consulting gives and overview of the BDD method, and Cigna, a global health service company, discusses how adopting BDD helped them transform their DevOps practice by:

• Increasing speed-to-market by sharing tools between business analysts and software developers.
• Managing expectations through collaboration and automated testing.
• Developing cost-effective applications with reduced complexity.
